The GD Test

I have a doctor’s appointment next Wednesday, when I will be 28w3d. I’m scheduled to get my Rhogam shot, and take the Gestational Diabetes test, affectionately abbreviated to the GD Test.

It’s funny, whenever I think about the GD test; when I say it or type it, or congratulate someone else on passing their GD test, I’m inclined to think not of Gestational Diabetes as it stands for but a swear phrase that is commonly frowned upon.

So every time I say, “Congrats on passing your GD test!” in my head, I’m not saying, “Congrats on passing your Gestational Diabetes test!” but I’m picturing some angry, swollen pregnant lady yelling sarcastically, “CONGRATULATIONS ON PASSING YOUR *** D@MN TEST!!!!!!!!”

My brain is a very strange place, I know.

Also, I don’t personally have a problem yelling or saying the afformentioned cuss word, but I know I have a few readers who might be offended by it and so I am being courteous.

You’re welcome.

Happy Hump Day!

P.S. Apparently when you type D@MN, Blogger magically inserts a link for you to click on. I clicked on it, and it’s trying to make me mail to D@MN. You can try it if you want, but I’m pretty sure that’s not a real e-mail address and if it is, it probably belongs to a large, sweaty, and very angry man who yells obscenities and shakes his fist a lot.
